What We Do

The main focus of the TV and Digital Media Department is our show visit program which reaches thousands of writers annually. Our show captains are member leaders who act as liaisons between their shows and our staff.

We also organize both members and non-members to secure a Guild contract in the areas of digital/new media, basic cable, animation, MOWs, game shows and videogames.
